Online Poker News - U.S. Online Poker Players Dominate, Despite Uigea
30th of July 2009 - latestpokerbonuses.com
10 million players can't be wrong - it's a great game!
New independent statistics from Poker Players Research show that online poker players in the United States continue to dominate the international market notwithstanding the inconvenience of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act which bans financial transactions with offshore online poker companies.
The numbers should give American politicians pause this year as Congressman Barney Frank pushes ahead with his bill HR 2267 to licence and regulate on line gambling in the States.
Poker Players Research found that there are over 10 million real money poker players in the United States - a number over five times greater than the next largest market, the United Kingdom, which has 1.9 million online poker fans.
Other major poker playing countries with a strong online sector include Germany (1.6 million players); France (1.3 million players) and Scandinavia - Norway, Sweden and Denmark, with 1.4 million real money players.
When it comes to the business of providing online facilities for players, it is perhaps no surprise that Poker Stars.com (the largest online poker website) and Full Tilt Poker.com (it's nearest rival) are the most successful, holding more than half the global online poker market and continuing to accept US business from their offshore locations.
